Training Library Specialists in Multi-Ethnic Heritage Programs. Papers presented at a Conference (Atlanta, Georgia, April 6-8, 1978).
Mills, Joyce White, Ed.
As part of an ongoing effort to prepare librarians and media specialists for work in a multi-ethnic society, the School of Library Service at Atlanta University sponsored a conference in April of 1978 on library programs and materials relating to the life styles, cultures, and histories of Native American, African American, Hispanic American, and Asian American peoples. Delivered by the main speakers at the conference, the papers in this collection address attitudes toward Native Americans in contemporary juvenile literature, role stereotyping and Puerto Ricans in New York City Public Schools, Asian American history and culture, and the Black American author in the world of publishing. The transcripts of the addresses are accompanied by a detailed conference program, a schedule of media events, and a brief summary of conference highlights. (JL)
